Got stabbed last year. Burning, itching sensation on chest. History of asthma. Causes for itching?

Hi, I need to ask a question. My friend is experiencing burning and itching on his side, and in his chest . He has asthma, but hasn t taken any asthma treatments since elementary because it only kicks in when he exercises. He got stabbed about last year, and they had to stitch him up in the inside too. Can this burning and itching be relavent to the stabbing incident, or is it something else?

Dear Adnikki15,
your friend's symptoms are not related to his asthma, also if it was because of nerve injury after stabbing and stitches ,it would have presented earlier and not after a year.
Most likely he has got fungal infection or allergies. he should get his blood eosinophil count done to check for allergies. skin cream containing Clotrimazole will help incase of fungal infections.
Hope this helps.. stay healthy and stay cheerful.
